About MTR Stockholm
Since autumn 2009 and for a minimum of eight years thereafter, MTR Stockholm (MTRS) has the responsibility for the running, planning and maintenance of the Stockholm underground system. MTR Stockholm is a subsidiary of MTR Europe in London, and employs about 3,000 people. In our view, it's our task to make the underground even more appealing to Stockholmers. The underground is far more than a mode of transport; it's an absolutely critical piece of the puzzle that makes Stockholm work.
We have ambitious goals for how the underground will be developed and changed in future. Our aim is to create a world-class underground system. We understand the importance of the underground for all the travellers that use it on a daily basis. Every day, more than one million journeys are made, and these should all be a positive experience. With a real customer focus and with security, punctuality, cleanliness and service as our guiding principles, we will keep the blood flowing through the veins of Stockholm.
We want to ensure that you have the best possible journey.
Maintenance is handled by Tunnelbanan Teknik (TBT), which is a collaboration between MTR Stockholm and Norway's leading train maintenance company, Mantena.
Internally here at MTR we value an open environment with a close dialogue between company management, supervisors and staff. Our ambition is for our management to hold regular, informal meetings with the staff in order to encourage this essential dialogue and stimulate conversations that improve the day-to-day runnings of the organisation.
Constant improvements are a vital element of our operations. We have developed a process-based system that takes the opinions and suggestions of our staff into consideration, allowing us to provide an even better travel experience to our customers.
